Stocking your Mac app up with apps that add value to your experience is something many of us – ot not all of us – do. But how many of us stock up on apps that maintain that level of experience? I’d wager to guess that the number is far, far lower.

The VB Store is giving those who are part of the few to become part of the many, as we unveil The Mac Utility Bundle, which will supercharge your Mac with 5 stellar Mac apps – including Parallels Desktop 8. And you’ll get it for 75% off the regular price…just $59.99!

Here’s what you’ll get in this power-packed bundle:

  • Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac: This is the #1 rated utility to run Windows on your Mac, and with Parellels Desktop 8 you can run Windows on your Mac without rebooting. The easy-to-use interface allows for a seamless experience on both the Mac and Windows side of things, and this version sports over 90 new features. (You can even run Linux side-by-side with Mac OS X.) If you’ve wanted to run another OS on your Mac, then this application is the one for you.
  • Snagit for Mac: With Snagit’s easy-to-use tools, you can quickly create images and videos to give feedback, solve a problem, or simply show off something cool. There are so many features built-in to Snagit, such as the ability to enhance images with stamps, text, and effects, the ability to organize your screen captures with easy auto-storing and tagging features, and much more. It really is the ultimate screen capture app!
  • VirusBarrier X6: Want protection from viruses, Trojan Horses, and all other known Mac malware? ViruxBarrier X6 has got you covered. It’s also the only antivirus for Mac that provides solid protection against network threats, with a two-way firewall, network protection, anti-phishing, anti-spyware features, and more.
  • MacOptimizer: MacOptimizer does a whole lot of optimizing. It gets your Mac back in shape by cleaning your system caches, optimizing your Mac’s speed, speeding up Mail client, freeing up inactive memory, and so much more!

But htere’s more to this VB Store offer. The first 3000 buyers will get a copy of Rubbernet, an app that keeps an eye on all network-enabled apps running on your Mac so you can take the necessary actions to resolve the problem. Rubbernet provides real-time monitoring so you can keep an eye on the exact state of your live network connections. It’s a $36 value…and if you get in on this deal early then you’ll get it for absolutely free.

But we’re not done yet…

Even if you decide to take ap ass on this bundle – although we have no idea why you’d do that – you can score yourself another free app: MacX iPad Video Converter. Thanks to our friends over at Digiarty we’re able to hook you up with a killer Mac app that allows you to convert all of your videos to play on your iPad at no cost to you. That’s a price anyone can get behind.

The Mac Utility Bundle is a rock-solid deal that won’t last for long. Save 75% off for a limited time and get this VB Store offer while you can!
